Shortcut to library pinned to taskbar

Hi all,

I have several libraries and I want to have a shortcut to one of them pinned on my taskbar, but I can't seem to do this.

Any advice on how to do this would be great!

Thanks in advance!

Hi sc00zy! Welcome to SevenForums.

Have a look at my post #12 in this thread. It will explain exactly how to do what you want.

Setting up Windows 7 to function like XP

Hope this helps.

May be it can not do like that you want, you can only pin Library folder into Windows Explorer icon (pinned in Taskbar).
First, you create a shortcut of Library folder to desktop, and then right-click on it, select "Pin to Windows Explorer".
When you want to open Library (that you have pinned to Windows Explorer), right-click on Windows Explorer icon, and click on Library's shortcut that you see.

I just say "may be", do everybody knows how to do?
